Three addictive pop-up console utilities

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 65.40.206.73] on November 08, 2007 12:09 AM
Currently running Linux Mint XFCE 4 (beta) but I've seen the following problems with earlier Mint XFCE.

Tilda only works a couple of times then the window opens and it is grey and unusable. You can access the right click menu but the terminal is borked. This also happens in IceWM and Waimea on the same system. IIRC, it works fine in Mint's default Gnome desktop.

YeahConsole errors with a shell error in XFCE and fails in IceWM and Waimea for presumably the same reasons. No error is mentioned when launched in the other window managers.

Yakuake seems to work fine IF you use the configuration feature. The annoying display bug disappears when using a different skin. I used Plastik (Dark) but I believe others should work the same.
